"And after April, when May follows 
And the white-throat builds, and all the 

Hark, where my blossomed pear tree in the 

Leans to the field and scatters on the clover 
Blossoms and dew-drops — at the bent spray's 

That's the wise thrush: he sings each song twice 

Lest you should think he never could recapture 
The first fine careless rapture!" —

As the class of 1914 
passes out from the 
walls I. W. C. each 
member bears with her 
her own store of treas- 
ures. Amid my store 
there is one that even 
now is of untold value 
but whose value will 
increase as the years 
pass. This precious 
treasure, however, rep- 
resents the outlay of 
$4.00, no extra time, no extra toil. The treasure is 
not beautiful to behold, to an inexperienced eye it is 
merely a pile of small papers, each bound in the 
same tan cover, each having the words "College Greet- 
ings" and the seal with the motto "Knowledge, Faith, 
Service." But to me it is a record of four years of citi- 
zenship in the realm of college life, an unbroken record of 
the progress of the college, of the activities of the class 
from the account of our organization to the announce-

ment of our commencement. Memory books tell their 
tale, to be sure, but for the true college spirit, for the true 
record of all college affairs, you need the college paper. 
When your college course is finished, you will be proud 
of a complete file of the college paper for the four years 
that you have been a citizen in the realm of college life. 

Erma Lytle Elliott, '14. 

Senior Privileges! Worthy to be capitalized indeed 
in the eyes of the under classmen. But what you thought 
are so envious, what do you mean by the words? 
For you they connote "Freedom," "Superiority," 
"Good times," "Convenience," "Ease." For you they 
carry a glamour, a far-off, almost unattainable Utopia 
which is reached by virtue of a four years' climb. To 
you, the Seniors are a favored class, elevated through the 
inexplicable favoritism of rank to a carefree unrestrained 
existence. There is, however, another side that cannot 
be realized until it is lived through. To tell the truth, 
upper classmen are bound with stronger shackles than 
any other class in the college. Along with "Privilege" 
must ever go "Responsibility." On us it depends to be 
the leaders, the presidents, the chairmen, the starters of 
student sentiment. Upon our attitude must rest more or 
less the attitude of the entire student body. To those 
who think of the "Honor" of being Editor-in-chief of the 
Greetings, or President of the Athletic Association, or 
Senior Proctor, let me say that it is in no respect a com- 
pensation. If we did things for honor alone, there would 
be very few things done, that's all. To us is given the 
greatest responsibility of keeping up and increasing the 
ideals of the college. Because we love our Alma Mater 
we are willing to give the time and to bear the worry. of 
our positions and sometimes to know the unappreciation 
and lack of understanding from our fellow students. 
Privileges? Yes, we do have them but the Responsibil- 
ities far, far outweigh them. When you are looking 
ahead try to see the inside as well as the outside of things, 

Page Four 

{Kfje College Greeting* 

and when you want mere privileges, ask yourself "Am I 
willing and capable of receiving the ever accompanying 
responsibilities? " 

Letta Irwin, '14. 

The Seniors like to start things. They hope now to 
have established an Arbor Day ceremony for the improve- 
ment of the College campus. To plant a tree was not 
hard to decide, but the kind of a tree led to great discus- 
sion. Dr. Harker's disapproving smile caused them to 
give up the idea of an apple tree. A lecture given by Mr. 
Heinl at the library advising tree planters to choose only 
native trees barred fringe trees, lindens and tulips, caus- 
ing them to choose the elm which is the historical Jack- 
sonville tree. 

After a short chapel exercise we gathered around the 
large hole on the campus which had aroused so much 
curiosity. A tree had been placed in it according to 
Hoyle. The ceremony closed with the singing of the 
College song. The girls hurried back from the First 
Class Tree Planting to the ten-thirty classes. 

As we look over the annals, we find that the celebra- 
tion of Arbor Day is practically universal both in foreign 
lands and in America. The custom was started by the 
state of Nebraska in 1875 to be celebrated on the second 
Wednesday in April. In our own state of Illinois it was 
established in 1877 and two years later over 10,000 
schools honored it. 

Some one has said, "He who plants a tree plants a 
hope." We are the first class in the Woman's College 
to observe Arbor Day and with the planting we have the 
hope that the life of this little tree may in some small 
way, with the spreading of its boughs, prophecy the glory 
of the spreading boughs of our college. This branch is 
only a symbol of the seed that has been sown in our lives 
here which will make them useful and helpful plants in 
the future, and we leave this as the most significant and 
suggestive means of expressing our gratitude. Our col-

lege elm has been considered as the most loved tree all 
over America. Wherever we are in the future, I think our 
happiest recollections will be centered in the college days, 
and the elm marking Arbor Day will long remain as a 
monument of former happy times. 

HallieClem, '14. 

What a holding on, there is to these last few weeks. 
Each week brings new pleasurable events which come 
only to Seniors, yet which marks off one more step toward 
the close of our college years. 'This is my last — " is a pass 
word among the seniors. Some times the lower class- 
men make undue sport of the phrase, but time will come 
when they will realize how hard it is to break from the 
present even for the charm of the future. What we have 
done and what we have meant to do, we measure with a 
sort of a down sinking of heart as we rush on to fill the 
remaining days full to the uttermost. Light permissions 
we seek as a common necessity, until those about us re- 
mark, "We can't see how those seniors are going to take 
time to graduate." We want to be busy. We want to 
get things done but we do not wish to give the impres- 
sion that all we have time for is "to. rush." We believe 
that by this time that work should be so systematized that 
it would appear to be done with ease, but how often we 
undeceive those about us as we add one more mad rush to 
our rooms where we have placed the large sign "Busy." 

Abigail Peavoy, '14. 


To thee our dear College 

The Seniors are singing to-day 
By faith, service, knowledge, 

We pledge ourselves ever to stay. 
Thy bright burning lamp shines abroad o'er our way 
Lighting our future with roseate ray.

Dear Alma Mater, I. W. C. 
Our heartsrings ever shall throb for thee 
We ne'er forget thee 
Far though we be. 
The green and the white 
To the yellow and the blue will be true. 
Our class 1914 to '46 pays homage due 
The debt that we owe we never can pay 
The love that we feel we never can say.

"What, Only Seven Seniors ?" 

Oh Freshmen eighty-four, 

You've quantity, we grant you: 
You've yet to prove what more! 

And Freshmen four and eighty, 
The Seniors beg to state 

That when we were Freshmen 
We were only twenty-eight ! 

So think not that the seven 
Have shrunk from eighty-four 

Go on, increase in wisdom ! 
Don't value numbers more. 

If you, oh four and eighty 
Accomplish more than we 

We'll loyally applaud you, 
Class of loyal-loyalty. 

Seraphina — "When the Seniors come back a hundred 
years from now and look at their elm they can be as proud 
of it as we are of the Big Elm. I think the Big Elm must 
be a hundred years old, but we could tell if we cut it down 
and counted the rings."

The Juniors had the 
privilege of unveiling 
the beautiful shield 
bearing the seal of the 
Woman's College at 
the chapel services on 
Tuesday morning, April 
7th. The shield is of 
mahogany and the seal 
of blue and gold. The 
shield measures 36x30 
inches and was- made by 
Edward Wackerle. 
After the usual chapel service, Dr. Harker announced 
that the class of 1915 would then take charge of the morn- 
ing exercises. The Juniors, dressed in the white and blue 
of their class colors, marched to the platform. 
Helena Munson gave a talk on the history of the college 
seal— the worth of such a seal and such a motto to the 
college "Knowledge, Faith, Service" — unconsciously, 
perhaps, these three words are the keynote of nearly all 
chapel talks and addresses given at the college. It hardly 
seems possible to have chosen a more fitting motto. 
Feril Hess then made a brief talk saying that although we 
had had our college seal on stationery, catalogues, and 
programs, we had never had a real seal to look at for in- 
spiration day by day. Then at a signal, the great blue 
and white blanket with the 1915 numerals upon it was 
drawn to the top of the stage, the blue and yellow drapery 
around the shield was drawn down, — and the shield dis- 
closed. The college song was sung by the student body 
and after a few remarks by Dr. Harker on the seal and 
motto the services closed. 

The class of 1915 deeply appreciates the honor con- 
ferred upon it in being given the privilege of unveiling this, 
the first seal of I. W. C , and hopes to be proven worthy

by daily striving to live up to the motto — to gain knowl- 
edge, to have faith and to live lives of service. 

Conceptions of God in the Psalms. 

The conceptions of God in all ages has been accord- 
ing to experiences through which the people have passed. 
Thus the Hebrews interpreted God in this way, they could 
only imagine God similar to their highest conceptions of 

We are able to follow this line of thought through all 
of the Psalms. In the early times when they were a war- 
like nation, God was a mighty warrior who went before 
them and led them to victory. Later God was a king 
sitting on a throne or else a judge. As they themselves 
knew little or no mercy toward their enemies, so they 
imagined God to be unmerciful toward the sinner. 

One of the earliest conceptions of God was of a man 
using the same instruments as they did in the seventh 

"If a man turn not, He (God) will whet his sword 

He later bent his bow and made it ready 

He hath also prepared for him the instrument of 

He maketh his archers fiery shafts." 

The idea of God as a judge and king seemed to be a 
much later one but even at this time there is very little 
idea of mercy: 

"Thou sittest on the throne judging righteously." 

In the eleventh psalm a similar idea is given of God 
as a judge and king: 

"Jehovah is in his holy temple 

Jehovah his throne is in heaven 

His eyes behold, his eyelids try the children of men." 

The Hebrew's conception of God all through the 
Psalms, especially in the earlier ones, is not that of love 

Page Nine 

Wbt College Greeting* 

and mercy, but revengeful and unmerciful to the wicked 
but dealing with mercy toward the righteous, 

"Jehovah trieth the righteous 

But the wicked and him that loveth violence his sword 

Upon the wicked he will rain snares, fire and brime- 
stone and burning wind shall be the portion of their cup. 

For Jehovah is righteous, he loveth righteousness 

The upright shall see his face." 

In another place, 

"Break thou the arm of the wicked 

And as for the evil man, seek out his wickedness till 
thou find none." 

The later idea which is more Christian, that God is a 
God of love, is brought into the Psalms to some extent. 
But even here God has love for the righteous alone, in- 
stead of one who forgives the sins of the wicked. 

"Praise ye Jehovah, oh give thanks unto him for he 
is good; for his mercy endureth forever. 

Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? " 

Who can show forth all his praise? " 

In many parts of the Psalms, we feel that God is more 
a God of the nation, who will protect the nation from her 
enemies but in other parts we feel that the psalmist has a 
more individual relation with God. At these times God 
seems to become almost a personality to them, to whom 
they can tell all their smallest troubles. 

Jehovah is thought to be the protection for the right- 
eous and a giver of all prosperity in many other Psalms. 

"God is our refuge and- strength 

A very present help in trouble." 

"Happy is he that hath God of Jacob for his help 

Whose hope is the Lord, his God." 

The idea that God is all powerful and watchful is given 
in many places but his power and greatness are judged ac- 
cording to their own power or by things that they know as 
in the nineteenth psalm : 

Page Ten 

QCfje College Greeting* 

'The heavens declare the glory of God and the fer- 
manent showeth his handiwork." 

In many of the Psalms we feel that they consider God 
to be a being to be feared rather than loved. Many of the 
Psalms consist almost entirely of cries for mercy. 

Although our conception of God has changed to a 
great extent, still we are able to understand, the Hebrew 
feelings as expressed in the Psalms. We are brought into 
a closer touch with the life of the people and their

Do not tell me fool- 
ish stories of the Fresh- 
men, now I say, for I'm 
thinking of the glories 
of the Sophomores 
every day. We are 
peachy and all hum- 
mers; nothing finer, not 
a lie, and we'll show off 
in the contest or I'll 
know the reason why. 
We're a class with good 
school spirit; we can 
work to beat the band and the rumours of our glory will 
spread throughout the land. We did surely fool the 
Freshmen, for to chapel they did trudge, and now! against 
the Sophomores they hold an awful grudge. We are 
faithful to the Seniors and so charming are our ways that 
they dearly love to have us help in parties, stunts and 
plays. Yes, the faculty are busy! Yet to us they ever 
rush with all the important matters, since on us they've 
sure a crush. Then, give three cheers for the Sopho-

mores, the class that's all O. K., for the memory of our 
spirit will live forever and aye.

Recreation has always been a vital factor in the life 
and growth of the city. In the classical cities, as much 
attention was given to the building of the theater and 
stadium as the market place and temple. The Greek 
cities had their games so important both in religion and 
patriotism. In mediaeval cities knights held their tour- 
neys and jousts, the Guilds gave their pageants and the 
church honored her saints with festdays and gay proces- 
sions. But it is only recently that our modern cities have 
realized that the growth of recreations controlled by the 
city has not kept pace with the gigantic development of 
industry which has gathered together, more and more 
young women to supply labor for the countless factories 
and workshops of the city. 

Public attention was first directed to recreation for 
the child, resulting in the agitation for the establishment 
of public play grounds, boys' and girls' clubs. As condi- 
tions in the recreational life of the city became better 
known the idea that the older boys and girls and the 
grown-up too must play was taken up, and to provide the 
right sort of recreation for the working girl is now an im- 
portant part of the work of our cities. 

Those cities having sea or lake frontage soon saw the 
great recreative possibilities of the water and of their piers. 

The first venture of this kind was made in New York. 
To one of the regular docks was added a second story 
with the purpose of making an amusement center where 
music and fresh sea air would be the attractions. With- 
out interfering with the work on the lower floor, great 
crowds flocked to the new social center until it soon be- 
came one of the city's most popular resorts. Other sea-

coast cities were not loth to follow this example, and Chi- 
cago, too, in Lincoln and Jackson Parks, has a near ap- 
proach to these recreation piers. At the present time in 
New York, the piers are maintained by the Department of 
Docks and Ferries at great expense. Throughout the 
season a concert is given on each pier from eight to ten. 
The cost of the music alone is over fifty thousand dollars 
each season. These piers vary in size from three hundred 
to eight hundred feet and their capacity varies accordingly. 
On hot Sundays there are often as many as twelve thou- 
sand people on the larger piers. 

Many cities, both on the coast and inland, have built 
in their public parks large halls that furnish a needed rec- 
reational center. These halls are given over to any group 
of young people who wish to conduct dancing parties un- 
der city supervision and chaperonage. Many social clubs 
have deserted saloons for these municipal drawing rooms, 
which are decorated with growing plants from the park's 
greenhouse and are brilliantly lighted from the park's own 
power house. 

On the one hand, just as one set of men have organ- 
ized industrial enterprises and profit by the toil of the 
working girl, so another class of men and women too have 
entered the formerly neglected field of creation and 
make profit for themselves out of youthful longing for 
pleasure. Huge dance halls have been opened to the 
hundreds of toilers eager for a little relief from the mo- 
notony of their toil. Many of them stand wistfully out- 
side a rapid circle, for it requires five cents to procure 
within it the sense of intoxication and excitement so allur- 
ing. Many reformers have suggested regulations for the 
dance halls, moving picture theaters and other amusement 
resorts in regard to censorship, chaperonage, ventilation 
and lighting, but very gradually and by much effort have 
these suggestions influenced existing conditions. In a 
recent report it was found that twenty-six of the largest 
cities have passed dance hall ordinances, and twelve others 

Page Thirteen 


W&t CoUege (greeting* 

are working toward that end. While these measures may 
not produce radical results, they are at least a great step 
forward in the approach of the city toward controlled 

Along with the dance hall are other commercialized 
forms of recreation such as the moving picture and vau- 
deville theaters and the cheap music halls, very popular 
in some sections of the large cities, where the perform- 
ances are not always seriously objectionable, but mingling 
real fun with much that is coarse and rough. 

The recreation halls occasionally connected with fac- 
tories, the pleasure and mutual benefit societies and other 
organizations of churches and settlements are fitting a 
genuine social need, although wretchedly inadequate for 
the demands made upon them. The working girls them- 
selves are being led to put their idealism into neighbor- 
hood improvement and by uniting their efforts with those 
of settlement workers they are establishing social centers 
of their own with recreation halls for their own neighbor- 

The foreign colonies found in all Aemrican cities af- 
ford an enormous reserve for recreational ideas. Not 
only do they celebrate the feasts and holidays of their 
fatherland, but have each their own expression for Ameri- 
can societies and anniversaries. The primitive Greek 
pipe played throughout the summer nights, the gay Bohe- 
mian theaters crowded with eager Slavs, the Hungarian 
musicians, the art loving Italians give a variety of sugges- 
tions and possibilities for public recreation and for the cor- 
porate expression of stirring emotions.

April first was stunt 
night. The Freshmen 
gave the first chapter of 
their original illustrated 
poem, written by Geor- 
gia Humberd, Bertha 
Webber and Grace Hel- 
ler. In this chapter 
Patty, aided by her fond 
parents, decided on the 
Woman's College as an 
ideal place for fun, 
work and college life. 
She visited shops and dressmakers in the mad rush of final 
preparation. On the fateful morning as Jack presented 
his huge box of chocolates, the caller called, Danville, 
Decatur and Jacksonville! Tearful goodbyes were said 
and thus the first chapter ended. The next was given 
by a second division of the class the next Wednesday 
evening, April eighth. She was met by the Y. W. girls 
at the train and installed in her room with her new room- 
mate. The mail brings word that the room-mate's "man" 
is coming. But when Reginald with his monocle did not 
appeal to Patty exactly. 

In the third and last chapter the faculty filed past Tn 
stately tread, led by our dear Dr. Harker, in caps and 
gowns. They were formally recognizing the Senior class, 
one of whom was Patty. Later in the year, amid a pro- 
fusion of roses, Patty gave her voice recital to a spell- 
bound audience. Finally it was commencement day and 
father, mother and Jack come to see their fair one receive 
highest honors. She announces to Jack that she is going 
to teach and has a really fine position. He is visibly con- 
cerned and later tells her what is on his mind. Slowly 
she yields, then rushes into his arms.

When Romulus his city built 

And planned and founded Rome, 
He made it not for present needs 

But as a future home. 
Then that its size might not be vain 

To make the city strong, 
He opened an asylum there 

For all oppressed by wrong. 

Men came from all the natives round 

To start their lives anew, 
Of every class, both bond and free, 

And strong the city grew. 
But with no issue of their line 

Their greatness soon would fall 
So to the neighboring nations sent 

An embassy to all. 

The right of inter-marriage 

And fellowship they sought 
They told of how the Romans brave 

With help from gods had wrought. 
How they had promised to protect 

And guard the Roman state: 
And surely no one would be loath 

To share so kind a fate. 

But nowhere were they well received 

For all were filled with fear 
To think of such a growing power 

And of their strength to hear. 
When the ambassadors were met 

With scorn on every hand, 
The Roman men their minds made up 

Some vengeance to demand. 

Great Romulus, with anger hid, 
Prepared a festive day 

Page Sixteen 

QTfje College Greetings; 

And bade the neighbors all to come 

To view the great array. 
The Consualia, he said, 

With games they'd celebrate. 
But secretly they planned to avenge 

The insult to their state. 

The guests assembled on that day 

From every nearby town, 
Filled with a keen desire to see 

This city of renown. 
The Sabines came among the rest, 

Their wives and children brought, 
And all were hospitably received, — 

Of fear they had no thought. 

When all had gathered at the games 

And on them were intent, 
A sign was given to the men 

Who among the Sabines went: 
Each one a maiden quickly seized, 

Before their parents' eyes. 
So swiftly had the deed been done 

They could not heed their cries. 

The maids at random had been seized 

And quickly carried home, 
By those to whom they chanced to fall, 

These bold young men of Rome! 
Those who for beauty had been known 

Were to the chiefs assigned, 
The others fell into the hands 

Of men of every kind. 

The parents fled in greatest fear 

Disturbed by this bold deed, 
Accusing broken bonds of faith 

Twixt host and guest agreed. 
Calling on the god whose games

They had come to Rome to see 
To help them to avenge this crime 
And their protector be.

The Senior Specials 
made a very pretty 
official entrance into 
chapel April 1. The 
Special class dressed in 
white, wearing violets, 
led the way. The fac- 
ulty followed led by 
Dr. Harker. The Spe- 
cial Seniors came in last 
and took their places in 
the front row of the 
Special section. Direc- 
tor Swarthout played Meditation from Thais. Mr. D. M. 
Swarthout accompanied him on the organ. 

This ceremony of seating the Senior Specials will take 
place hereafter annually at the beginning of the second

We consider ourselves very fortunate in having with 
us the exponents of chamber music, 'The Kneisel Quar- 
tette/' on March 25. Their ensemble work and phrasing 
was perfect, and the recital was greatly enjoyed by all. 
Mrs Hartmann, who has sung with the quartette, enter- 
tained in their honor. 

At the Teachers' Institute which was held here March 
2 7, Director Max Swarthout played the viloin solo 
Wieniawski's "Valse Capriccio," and Mr. Donald Swarth- 
out played Rees' "Perpetual Motion," for piano. 

The final number of the lecture course was given on

April 6 by Miss Carol Robinson, pianist, of Chicago. Mrs. 
Jess, soprano, who was to have appeared in joint recital 
with her, was ill and unable to appear. Miss Robinson's 
work was very artistic, and her beautiful tone made the 
recital a very pleasing one. 

The annual series of senior recitals opened April 2 with 
an organ recital by Alice Mathis, pupil of Mr. D. M. 
Swarthout. Piano recitals were given April 9 by Deane 
Obermeyer and April 2 3 by Lucile dinger, pupils of Mr. 
D. M. Swarthout. A joint recital in voice was given 
April 16 by Nina Slaten and Helen Jones, pupils of Mrs. 
Hartmann. Miss Helen Harrison, pupil .of Mr. Max von 
L. Swarthout, gave her recital April 30. The series will 
close with that of Mary Shastid, pupil of Mr. D. M. Swarth- 
out, May 7. The programs have been exceedingly inter- 
esting and have reflected great credit upon the department 
as a whole. 


The students of the Home Economics Department, at- 
tended a talk at the public library given by Mr. Heinl on 
the evening of March 31st concerning the planning of 
home grounds and the planting of trees and shrubs. 

On Saturday, April 4, Miss Bailey of the Department 
of Agriculture at Washington, D. C, gave a very inter- 
esting and profitable talk to the students about the oppor- 
tunities open to young women who are trained along 
home economics lines. Many new ideas were gained by 
the students. 

The practice classes in the department which are 
taught by the students of the second year are progressing 
very nicely. Next year classes of this kind will probably 
be started in September.

students greatly enjoyed her exquisite presentation of 
Norman Duncan's "Mother." 

The Expression Department entertained the public on 
April seventh with an exhibition of Preparatory, Expres- 
sional and Aesthetic Work in Rhythm. It was represen- 
tative of the work done in the rhythm classes under the 
direction of Miss Allen. 

The contest season has begun. This is shown by the 
fact that Miss Parsons and Miss Allen have frequently been 
called to act as judges at various high schools. 


Oh, why are the fourth 
preps gathered 
Again in an anxious 
group ? 
So often of late we have 
seen them 
As out of the chapel 
we troop. 

Poor things- — they are 
choosing new colors, 
It does seem to worry 
them so. 
Well, they have the whole rainbow before them, 

Why don't they choose some and go? 
Here they come, let us ask what they've chosen 

And why it has taken so long — 
Pink and Green!— what a queer combination, 
Now what on earth can be wrong? 

"Green and white would be — oh so much better 
Why didn't you take those, you geese? "

"Oh the Seniors have had them for ages, 
You see they come first, if you please." 

"And yellow and white are the Sophomores. 

No wonder you had such a time. 
Why don't yo-u take red ? O those Freshmen, 

They entirely slipped my mind. 

"Blue and white? — Those belong to the Juniors. 

But wait — Now I'll tell you just what, 
Lavendar!" "Oh but the Specials — 

You left them quite out of your thought." 

"Let's see, I must think for a little. 

It's quite a big problem, I guess. 
Excuse me for speaking so quickly, 

You've done pretty well I confess. 

"Girls, I must have more time to consider. 

I'll think of some soon, but — oh well, 
Don't you mind, pink and green are right pretty. 

Really, girls, why, I think they are swell."

Joint Program by German Club and Music History Class 

The German Club and Music History class gave a very 
interesting program March 30. The subject was the Ro- 
mantic movement in Literature, Music and Art, with spe- 
cial reference to Heine. A number of Heine's songs were 
sung by Miss Beebe, Fern Hartsuck and Johanna Onken. 


Junior-Senior Reception 

On March 16 the Juniors were given a royal reception 
by the Seniors in the society halls. An orchestra hidden 
behind screens and palms helped to brighten the evening 
with its music. Geneva Upp proved an efficient chalk 
talker and crayon artist when she drew a cartoon and read 
a fitting verse for each one. Late in the evening the 
guests were taken into Phi Nu hall, which had been 
screened off for a dining room. On each table was a 
bowl of white sweet peas set in the midst of green smilax. 
Lighted candles sitting on the backs of genuine Irish potato 
pigs made the tables cheerful. Each one was guided to 
her place by a map of Ireland. Refreshments were 
served which were equal in quality to the other prepara- 
tions for the evening. As we tiptoed to our rooms at a 
late hour we Juniors felt that the Junior-Senior reception 
had measured up to all the good things we had heard of 
it in the last three years.

Suit cases piled in lower halls on Friday marked the 
general exodus for the one day's vacation. The seventy 
left behind centered their attention on making the recess 
different from the usual routine. The Y. W. planned 
an egg hunt on the campus for Friday evening. A lively 
bunch of girls it was who immediately scattered over the 
campus after dinner in search of the brightly colored eggs. 
When the eggs had all been found the groups centered 
about the bonfires to roast marshmallows until it was too 
cold and dark to remain out of doors any longer. 

Saturday there was a picnic for those who wished it at 
Gravel Springs. Dinner cooked over the camp fire, a 
long romp in the woods, climbing fences, looking for birds 
and flowers, a gay ride home filled the day with satisfac- 

One of the loveliest days of the year has been until

Wfyt College (greetings 

the last two years the Easter Sunday under the direction 
of the Y. W. C. A. No noisy rising bell in those other 
days awakened the sleeping girls, but voices singing Easter 
hymns on all the corridors. The breakfast room was 
made by these same girls a flower-land. These exercises 
because of the few left in the College have for the most 
part had to be omitted. A day of rest has been gained, 
the girls still place a bunch of spring blossoms at your 
place at the breakfast table, but the whole effect of the 
lovely day has necessarily been given up. We are glad 
for the holiday but we miss the ceremonies of the other 
Easter days. 


The annual open meeting of the Phi Nu Society was 
held on April 18 in Music Hall. The literary program 
which was given was based upon Social Conditions and 
Social Service, of which the society has made a study dur- 
ing the semester. Erma Elliott talked on 'The Child in 
the Industrial World." Elaine Buhrman and Ruth Har- 
per read papers on "Summer Camps and Playgrounds" 
and 'The George Junior Republic," and Abbie Peavoy 
read a charming original story, "His Three. Days." 

There were two musical numbers, a vocal solo by Fern 
Hartsuck and a two-piano number, "The Dance of Death" 
by Ruth Mattocks and Ruth Brown. The program was 
concluded by the Phi Nu song. 


The posters announcing the Phi Nu stunt "The 
Sparklebug" were decidedly clever and heralded an 
equally clever musical skit. The scene was laid at Lake 
Mantanzas with a crowd of I. W. C. girls in camp at Oak 
Lodge. There were a good many songs, parodies from 
"The Firefly," and a breezy shadow of a plot. We gave 
it on April 25 in Music Hall and charged admission, hoping 
thereby to make a goodly sum for endowment.

The Belles Lettres open meeting will be held Saturday 
evening, May second, in Music Hall. 

The programs on the study of the American Drama 
have been especially interesting the past month. At one 
meeting Miss Allen gave a talk on the American Farce, 
with selections from John Kendrick Bangs. April 14 
Miss Parsons talked on the Little Theater, giving a de- 
scription of the theater and its motives and a synopsis of 
'The Pigeon," one of its plays. 

Miss Louise Miller and Miss Sieverdena Harmel were 
here for a few days in March. 


We were very glad to have with us at our meeting on 
April 7, Erma Cressner, one of our members of last year, 
who was the guest of Ruth Want. 

We regret greatly the loss of one of our members, 
Zala Fonner, who has returned home because of illness. 
Irma Miller, who left in February, we are glad to learn, 
is much improved. 

Much interest has been shown in the programs this 
semester and the work done has been strong and inspiring. 
Splendid papers dealing with the work of women in the 
past and opportunities for women in the future have been 
given by Georgia Humberd, May Blackburn, Ruth Want, 
Grace Heller, Wylma Cox and Ola Wendel.

loyalty and love for our Alma Mater abounds everywhere.
